Netflix has released the second season of its hit Mexican thriller Who Killed Sara?.


The series (¿Quién mató a Sara?) follows Álex Guzmán (Manolo Cardona), who spent 18 years in prison wrongfully accused of his sister Sara Guzmán's (Ximena Lamadrid) murder. When he's released, he plots his revenge on the devious Lazcano family, who framed him.

However, the season one finale suggested that our hero's beloved sister Sara was not all she said she was.

Series star Manolo Cardona recently described the second season as "reloaded," and promised it would be "better than the first one".

"It's going to be reloaded. I think all the fans around the world liked the first one, but I think this is going to have more suspense, more mystery, more action, more romance — a lot of things are going to blow some minds. I think it's bigger. It's going to be great. It's going to be better than the first one," he told Entertainment Weekly.

Here's everything we know about Who Killed Sara? season two.

Who Killed Sara? season 2 plot and spoilers

*Warning: spoilers ahead for Who Killed Sara? season one*

The Who Killed Sara? season one finale showed viewers another flashback to when Sara died in August 2001, apparently while parasailing.

But we still have no idea who murdered her, or whether she's even dead at all (her body is never shown on-screen).

"Very few of us are what we seem," Sara wrote in her diary, and that was true: it's revealed she was pregnant by patriarch César Lazcano (Ginés García Millán) at the time of her death (César is the father of her then-boyfriend), giving the Lazcano family potential motive to murder her and save their reputation.

"I found out things about Sara's past," Álex says in the season two trailer, to which Elisa Lazcano (Carolina Miranda) adds: "If you seek revenge, dig two graves."

Asked if he knew who killed Sara, series star Cardona said, "I know who killed Sara, yes. I just have to say that you guys are gonna be in for a lot of surprises. This is just getting better and better."

Netflix's season two synopsis reads: "Alex Guzman has to face his worst nightmare: his sister Sara's true personality, whom clearly he never knew at all. At the same time, a buried mystery corpse in his own patio becomes a ticking clock that can make him go back to prison at any time. He has no other choice than to become an investigator and put together all the pieces that will portray Sara's true and terrible story and her relationship with the Lazcano family."
